Over five hundred years ago, Esperetta’s soul was bound to her husband’s by dark magic, and when Velkan became a Dark-Hunter, to her horror, she became immortal as well. Now, they must come together to fight an old enemy… and the passion that threatens to consume them once more.
“Let me guess, Velkan wants to see me?”
“No. The only thing His Highness would like to seein regards to you, Princess, is your disembowelment.”
It is a Romeo and Juliet story embedded into the Dark-Hunter Universe.
The main characters are Esperetta, daughter of Vlad Tepes, and Velkan Danesti, once a sorcerer, now a Dark-Hunter with shape-shifting abilities. They were enemies by families but fell in love and got married in secret more than five hundred years ago. Both of their families disowned them, and after a tragic chain of events, Retta ran away from Velkan.
Dignity and pride don’t allow them to express their feelings. They are both unbelievably stubborn not to reach for each other for five centuries. It is just unimaginable for a mortal like me to waste so much time.
Anyway, it is nicely worked-out, both for the main and the secondary characters. Aside from one little mistake in the plot (Spoiler alert! Highlight to read! As Velkan bonded his life force with Esperetta’s, he should have died when her father stabbed Retta), it is a great story. Don’t miss it!
